Explain to me how do I enjoy the outdoors...

...bug free?

OK so maybe I'm doing it all wrong but how does one enjoy the outdoors without being chewed by mosquitoes, finding a tick somewhere on the body or sharing a meal with flies?

Please, I beg of you.

I love going outside. It is one of the activities I look forward to the most in the Spring, Summer, and Fall but man, there are mosquitoes, little no-see-ums, and soon flies just buzzing and wating for their next meal.

Sometimes I just want to sit out back, drink my tea, and watch birds eat from the feeder.  But I'm contantly swating and trying to keep from getting bites all over.

So if you know of a safe, pesticide free way to really enjoy my back yard, please, tell me. 

What do you for yourself and for your family too?
